Free PDF: Co-Creating Knowledge Online

Co-Creating Knowledge Online cover

Co-Creating Knowledge Online is the second booklet in a series of Internet field guides (formerly “critical guides”) I have developed for community artists and culture makers. It is for those who are interested in better utilising the Internet to connect, share, and make new knowledge. It builds on the premise that people have become increasingly networked as individuals rather than in groups, and that these new ways of connecting enable new modes of peer-to-peer co-creation. It is an attempt to translate my PhD research findings for community arts practitioners, and was inspired by the practices of CuriousWorks.

The booklet is available as a free PDF in beta. If you download it, please leave a comment on this post regarding why the booklet is of interest to you. The guide is CC licensed for re-purposing. Enjoy!

P.S. Thanks so much to everyone who fed back during the beta-release of my first booklet, Appropriate Approaches to Online Community (previous post on this blog).

  1. I’m downloading it because it’s your work generally, but also because I’m interested in how the Internet enables sharing of knowledge and ideas as well as the ways communities are being formed and disrupted by our use of digital technologies. I also support and appreciate efforts by academics to apply their research in practical contexts, so the world can benefit from their work and knowledge.
    Thanks Pip!

  2. I download your pdf because with the colleagues of my research team in the university complutense of madrid, we are interested in finding and knowing about forms of collaborative knowledge and innovative research methods. As the name of our web says, we are interested as well in ordinary life, practices and affects, so connexions between community arts, hack culture and open source sound really inspiring

  3. I’m researching online music collaborations on sites like Soundcloud and, I was interested in seeing your theoretical model.

  4. I’m interested in free culture, software libre, and the collaborative knowledge movement. Based in Ecuador, just returned from a community meeting about software libre, and was impressed by the ways that folks are sharing knowledge and building community-based communication networks.

  5. I’m downloading the manual because I can’t wait to see intersections with my own work on self-representation by individuals and communities in networked spaces – and hope to one day collaborate with you! How’s the thesis going BTW : )

  6. I’m going to consider using it for two graduate classes this summer: one in Communication Studies–Social Media–and the other in Education–Critical Digital Media Literacy. Thank you for making it available to us. If you’d like to interact with the students, please let me know!

  7. HI Pip,
    I’m in the process of writing an essay on the practical implications of the digital revolution on a visual arts practice and thought your clever little booklet might help me to define my topic a little better. xx

  8. Hi Pip,

    Another nice and neat little guide from you!. The content is easy to understand, non-technical and I love the ‘half-way’ page. It is a great way of alerting artists to important (and taken-for-granted) facts about social media (who owns it, what happens when things go wrong, etc.) and an important tool towards broadening the reach of PhD research projects.

  11. Hi Pip, like these scenarios as a way to discuss the pragmatics and theories of co-creation on line. I’ve shared this with a class I run on new communication. Cheers, Marius

  12. This might help my research with regards to participatory art and outcome-based community projects…I’m interested in how technology is utilized during these processes.

  13. I’d like to learn more about how networks of teachers can co-create curriculum online. I’m hoping to use some of your experiences in the arts as springboards for other sorts of educational work and knowledge creation.

  17. I’ve downloaded your booklet because I am just finishing a Ph.D on community filmmaking and thought it might be useful for my research in general as well as for work, future projects or further directions my research interests might take. Thanks for making this available.
